Computational simulation of cell biology and tissue regeneration

Cell migration, differentiation, proliferation and morphology are essential aspects in many physiological and pathological processes, from wound healing to diseases such as cancer. In these aspects, numerical methods can be useful tools that help to understand the physical mechanisms behind the different processes that affect cellular behavior individually or collectively. In this line, numerical models are being developed to predict the directionality, speed, differentiation, proliferation and morphology of cells considering the different aspects involved in cell migration when different stimuli (mechanical, thermal, chemical and / or electrical) are applied in the microenvironment in which they are found.
